Description

We’re building a team of freelance writers with 5+ years in Martial Arts to write copy that not only helps launch our new site, www.fightingartshealthlab.com, but supports the ongoing updates to the site.

Fighting arts is pervasive in every city, country and continent. There are many story tellers providing deep insights into fighters, training, training camps, evaluating up coming fights, the blow by blow and the post mortum of fights. Yet what happens after the fight, a training session or a night on the town.

Your focus will be on fighting arts lifestyle and culture trends, music, food, fashion, art, and entertainment. How are fighters influencing those areas or how are those areas influencing fighters? Who are the innovative in martial artists? Are they artists, chefs, designers, brewers etc. How are these mover and shakers shaping the landscape? You will be tasked with digging deeper to find the unique aspect to the story in your city, region, nation or continent.

While we do not have any articles written yet, here are a few examples that demonstrate what is required at a city or country level.
